I was diagnosed with Leukemia on 9/11/01. Being in DC, there were no beds available in DC or NYC. I had to get to M D Anderson in Houston, but didn't know about Mercy Medical/Air Compassion For Veterans. Had I known then, I wouldn't have had to drive, but could have used ACFV. Therefore, I got involved so other vets could be properlytaken care of.

I am a Vietnam vet. Fortunately, I was not seriously wounded. Last year I was priviledged to attend a function for veterans, sponsored by Air Compassion for Veterans. They flew in 10-12 veterans undergoing serious rehabilitation from Washington DC to Virginia Beach. What a wonderful organization. Upon checking, I find that even as a Vietnam vet, I have access to their flights/transportation assets. I'm sold on ACV.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Viewing how much they have meant to wounded warriors AND THEIR FAMILIES! This group is the best I've observed and has a noble cause - transporting veterans and their families for rehabilitative services, when they cannot afforde their own transportation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the interface with other veterans. It has been a healing process for me being a Vietnam vet, to get to know, personally, Iraq and Afghanastan veterans who were injured.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

are all first rate, totally dedicated individuals with a strong moral code.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do more good works. I understand, they have one of the lowest administrative costs - thus ensuring the vast majority of $s goes to those who need it.

ACV is a dedicated group of people who give back to those who give their all for our country... our service people and their families. I have had the opportunity to hear first hand from service men and women who have benefited from air travel provided by ACV.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing how ACV has assisted veterans and their families from the veterans who have received their services.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

fund an advertising campaign to raise additional funds and make more veterans aware of the assistance available through ACV.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the staff and volunteers believe in what they do and will go out of their way to help.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated and compassionate.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand its services in order to serve many more veterans and their families utilizing 4% or less of those funds for administrative purposes. They could also expand their services to include veterans from the Gulf, Viet Nam, Korean, and WWII.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time and money to give to ACV

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

how to raise/obtain additional funding and/or airline tickets to expand their services.

One thing I'd also say is that...

if you are available and able to attend the annual "Halos and Heroes" fundraiser, go. You will be inspired by the stories and meet some of America's living "treasures".

I help with the Air Compassion event at the Virginia Beach Airport every year. It is so rewarding to honor the men and women who serve our country. The leaders and staff of Air Compassion do a wonderful job of taking care of our military and their families in time of need. They are a wonderful group doing a great job!

I have been involved with Air Compassion for Veterans since it's inception. And while I have not had the need to use their services directly, I have watched the program help thousands of our Wounded Warriors and their families by easing the burden of the costs of flights to their treatment centers, home on leave, and sadly, transporting family members for burial services of their loved ones. ACV has reunited family members with their injured loved one to promote healing and provide support and encouragement. While one soldier had no family, ACV flew his best friend to visit him at Walton Reed Hospital. The stories from the soldiers we have helped are touching and inspirational. We pray that ACV will find the funding to continue their mission.

ACV is a totally dedicated group of people. They have a real passion for serving our armed forces. They provide critical transportation to wounded warriors to get to specialized treatment and how ACV makes that happen when government can't cover the cost. As a retired Naval Officer, I cannot emphaisize the importance of their efort to the military members and their families.

I have found Air Compassion for Veterans to be totally dedicated to helping our men and women in uniform. They unselfishly give of time and resources to make the lives of our veterans better and let them know how much we appreciate their service. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. Their annual Halos and Heros appreciation in Virginia Beach brings together veterans froma ll branches of service to enjoy food, fellowship, friends and entertainment in a very patriotic environment.

It is a profound joy to join in helping Air Compassion For Veterans assist our military heroes. Whether helping with Internet programming, flying a veteran in need of medical care, or attending a ceremony to honor our wounded warriors, Air Compassion For Veterans has provided me not only with an opportunity to serve, but with an opportunity to be personally blessed.

I help with fundraising, public education and combined federal campaign activities. This is a wonderful charity that provides free medically related air transportation for wounded warriors, veterans and their families when DOD is unable to do so which is often. ACV is now providing over 500 flights per month. The staff and volunteers are extremely passionate about helping those who sacrifice for our country.
